How to Create True, Real, Untouchable Financial Freedom through Real Estate by Building Recurring, Repeatable, and Scalable Cashflow!
I want to introduce you to one of the most important concepts that you’ll come across anytime soon. It’s important both for you and your family. It’s important for your security. It’s important for your prosperity. And most importantly it’s important for your freedom. Your freedom from working a job you hate, your freedom from spending sleepless nights worrying about paying bills, your freedom from waking up every day and dreading having to do things that you hate doing, your freedom from continuing to live knowing you’re not pursuing your true calling because you’re stuck struggling to provide for you and your family. Your freedom from leading an unfulfilled life and dying with regrets.
I call this the “F**k You Wall”. If you’re the type to get offended by my language then you probably don’t belong here. Because building a Fuck You Wall is not for the faint-hearted. It requires blood, sweat, tears and a good amount of patience. It requires hard work, determination, and perseverance. It requires hearing the word “no” many times before you ever hear a “yes”. It requires what we call in the good ol’ US of A: “hustle”.
And maybe, instead of being offended by my occasional F-bomb, you should be offended by some other things:
You should be offended by the school system that spends 16 years teaching you everything EXCEPT for how to be financially responsible.
They teach you everything BUT how to balance a checkbook or say “no” to bad debt.
You should be offended by the school system that aims to make wage slaves out of you and your children.
They teach you everything BUT entrepreneurship. You leave college with hundreds of thousands in debt and no real life skills.
You should be offended by a system where you are required to work 40, 50, 60 hours a week just to make ends meet
If a life where you live paycheck to paycheck just to survive doesn’t piss you off, then you’re in the wrong place
You should be offended by the government that, after you work that grueling 60 hour week takes, 40-50% for themselves
There are ways to legally beat taxes. Read on.
You should be offended by the financial advisers who tell you to put your money into the stock market!
Buying stocks at market value is not investing. And financial advisers (unless they’re fiduciaries) just want to work your money over for commissions.
You should be offended by the real estate gurus who tell you that wholesaling is the path to financial freedom!
Wholesaling is a good way to make a quick buck, but nobody ever got truly wealthy wholesaling. REAL wealth in real estate comes from ownership.
And speaking of walls, let’s get this out of the way: this has nothing to do with a physical wall, like a border wall. This is being written by an immigrant. An immigrant that came here (legally, though), fought like hell to build this wall for himself and his family, and is thankful and proud to live in this country. But this “Fuck You Wall” can be built anywhere, whether you live in Morocco, Australia, or the north freaking pole.
For the sake of brevity, going forward, we’ll refer to this as “the FU Wall”. And “FU Wall” can stand for some other things that are more palatable to you wussies that cringe at cusswords:
The Financially Unstoppable Wall
The Financially Untouchable Wall
Because that’s what this is. You’ll see…
And before we get any further, one more thing: this is a long education piece. We will go deep into a number of concepts and topics here that are vital for your future prosperity, independence and freedom. But in today’s world of instant gratification, 20-second Facebook videos, and Snapchat, most people have the attention span of a cocker spaniel on acid. So if you’re one of such people, again, you probably don’t belong here. Building an “FU Wall” will require you to become a master of your craft. It will require you to “get rich slow”.
So why is this such an important topic and why is it hugely vital you take the time to read this, bookmark this, and come back to it time and time again until you’re actually putting these concepts to work?
Let’s talk about that first:
Here’s how 99.7% of Americans (and it’s probably worse outside of the US) live their lives:
Go to work, get a paycheck, spend the entire paycheck on rent, mortgage, bills, etc. Wait until next payday. Rinse and repeat. God forbid they get fired or miss a paycheck. It’s a full on crisis if that happens. A recent survey by the Fed showed that 40% of adult American’s can’t cover a $400 emergency expense! That’s straight up crazy. And scary. And sad.
Now, maybe you’re reading this and you are further ahead than the average Joe. You have a solid job and career and some savings. Bad news though! A job NEVER means security. What if you get fired or laid off? What if there’s a recession and you can’t get another job quickly? How long will those savings cover your bills before you’re starting a GoFundMe campaign online or begging for change on the corner?
Millennials are particularly screwed but they’re not the only ones. If you have student loan debt, credit card debt, car loans, a big house mortgage you’re struggling to pay, things are only going to get worse unless you find a way to build your own F.U.
